on tape. the final moments as police moved in. watch again. the suspect walks to the car. police ram his vehicle. guns drawn. he gives up without a fight. ending a violent day. >> there's been a shooting at the mall. we're trying to set up a perimeter. >> reporter: 11:15 a.m., with thousands of customers at the montgomery mall, shots ring out in the parking lot. a woman hit, two men trying to help her shot as well. all rushed to the hospital, where one of the good samaritans later died. stunned shoppers trapped inside. >> nordstrom rolled down their metal doors and on two sides and they locked us in place. >> reporter: at 11:50 a.m., ten miles away, another fatal shooting. a woman gunned down near this giant supermarket. police suspect the same man is responsible, identified as eulalio tordil, an officer with the federal protective service. one reason they're suspicious,
he is believed to have shot and killed his estranged wife at this local high school just after 4:30 p.m. thursday. his wanted poster issued with this warning -- the suspect has made threats to commit suicide by cop. >> we are looking at whether last night's shooting in prince george's county and these shootings were committed by the same suspect. >> reporter: homeland security officials tell us that tordil was placed on administrative leave, his badge and gun taken, after a court order to stay away from his wife was issued against him in march. in the tense hours before his arrest, government offices and local schools went into lockdown. but the violence ended without incident. >> he got out of the car with his hands up. >> reporter: but in a bizarre twist, police reveal that after his alleged rampage the suspect went to the same shopping center where the washington sniper spree began 13 years ago, spending an hour eating in the same boston market where the murderous duo had once dined.
>> a bizarre coincidence. pierre, you told us there were real concerns there would be more bloodshed. >> yes, david. tordil was arrested just across the street from the final victim he allegedly murdered. he didn't run very far, but was hiding in plain sight. david? >> thank you, pierre. next to another piece of video just coming in. and it's harrowing. from the massive fire north of the border. authorities say it's out of control. one family watching on their iphone after they escape. the security camera in their home capturing this. the flames ripping right into the home. and this time lapse video showing the fire sweeping into an airport hangar.
and neal karlinsky is there, where officials say they expect the fire will double. >> reporter: tonight, that dramatic image. flames bursting into a house by the living room door. james o'reilly and his wife barely managing to make it out. their fish tank and all of their belongings left behind. watching it all play out on a security camera connected to their phone. smoke along the ceiling, filling the whole room. then flashes of light and crackling as their home is consumed by flames. scenes like that turning into this. row after row of charred homes and cars. and tonight, the exodus. through thick smoke and flames, the only way to get out. so what's it been like driving through there? >> its been mostly like an apocalyptic horror. >> reporter: dan soupal and his family, among 1,500 cars escorted through the charred remains of ft. mcmurray today. flare-ups keeping fire crews so busy, equipment cooled down with water. at least four moms going into labor as they fled, including susan harty.
>> we're very fortunate and lucky that all of us got out. >> reporter: the wind has picked up and you can see there's a big flare-up of flames down there now. that, as this convoy of evacuees continues to come through. this fire remains extremely dangerous. david? >> neal, thank you. as we head into the mother's day weekend, we're tracking major storms, severe weather on both coasts. heavy rain in raleigh, north carolina, swamping cars and causing accidents. and in the west tonight, hail near reno, nevada. hammering the front of the car. an inch of rain an hour flooding parts of fresno, california. rob marciano is live in new york city tonight, where it's been raining all day. a tough weekend ahead. >> reporter: yeah, after a tough
week. look at the radar, centered right over baltimore. and the bigger picture, showing two deep troughs and a big ridge in the middle. and as the storm moves into the plains, two to three days of severe weather, through colorado, kansas, and oklahoma. and cincinnati and louisville would see a chance for severe weather as well this weekend for mother's day. >> rob, thanks. we turn next to the race for the white house. donald trump responding to the deep divide within the republican party. now promising to unite the gop now that he's the last man standing. but speaker of the house, paul ryan, saying he's not ready to support trump. and late today, news of a summit of sorts. here's jonathan karl. >> reporter: tonight in nebraska, donald trump sounded mystified about that snub from speaker of the house paul ryan.
>> paul ryan, i don't know what happened. i don't know. he called me two, three weeks ago. it was a very nice conversation. he was congratulating me. this was before we had the ultimate victory but he was congratulating me on doing so well. >> reporter: ryan, the most powerful republican in america, shocked the political world, by saying he's not yet ready to support trump. that the billionaire deserves credit for winning, but -- >> he also inherited something very special. that's very special to a lot of us. this is the party of lincoln, of reagan, of jack kemp. >> reporter: trump shot back on twitter. "wrong, i didn't inherit it. i won it with millions of voters." trump and ryan today agreed to meet in person next week. caught in the middle, republican party chairman reince priebus, who found himself defending trump's widely-derided tweet eating a taco bowl and declaring, "i love hispanics." >> he's trying. [ laughter ]
and -- honestly, he's trying. >> reporter: but every day is bringing new republican defectors. today, two of trump's opponents who had pledged to support the gop nominee no matter what, jeb bush and lindsey graham, said they won't support trump. and while republicans fight for the soul of their party, today, the president himself taking shots from the white house. >> this is not entertainment. this is not a reality show. this is a contest for the presidency of the united states of america. >> the president saying it's not a reality show. jon, you've learned that paul ryan and donald trump will sit down in washington next week? >> reporter: they'll meet here in washington next thursday. but i would not expect a quick breakthrough. in fact, a source close to ryan does not rule out supporting a third-party candidate, but he
hopes it won't come to that. meantime, donald trump sitting down with our george stephanopoulos. asked about what he makes of paul ryan saying he's not ready to support trump. >> got to talk about paul ryan. he says you have to earn his support. >> i really think i earned the support from the people. we've gotten more votes than anybody in this position that's ever run for the office. looking at the republican primary votes, millions of people came in and voted for me. >> what are you going to tell him? >> look, this is what the people want. >> jeb bush won't vote for you. >> i was rough on him, and i don't think i would vote for me either if i was him. >> much more on "this week" sunday morning. and major league baseball cancelling two games in puerto

we don't really know what's going on or where we are going. we were all packed into buses, destination unknown. turns out we were taken across the street from this vast hall. inside, the curtain rose on north korea's first party congress in 36 years. but we're not allowed in. kim jong-un, defiantly boasting of the country's, quote, "great nuclear success." on the street outside, an old man tells me, "our nuclear forces are very accurate for a precision strike against the white house." the white house? >> yeah. >> reporter: later, we are all taken to a factory making wire. a bustling showcase where happy workers also can enjoy a soccer field, swimming pools, even hair salons. these are the permitted hair styles for women in north korea. these are the choices available to you if you want to get your hair cut here. but what reporters are not shown is the starvation here, the human rights abuses, scenes like this.

spilling potatoes on the highway. here's gio benitez. >> reporter: watch closely as a fedex truck weaves in and out of a lane. and look, here it moves into the middle lane, hits a vehicle, and then loses control. slamming into other cars, causing a nasty pile-up in nashville. >> there was no time to think. i was just underneath a semi going down the road. >> reporter: incredibly, despite a fire on the road, no serious injuries. the driver of the fedex truck, cited for fatigue. and tonight, fedex tells abc news that all drivers are expected to obey all traffic laws in safely operating their vehicles. in the u.s., there are 100,000 crashes a year because of drowsy driving. just look at what happened today in charlotte. a potato truck driver charged with failing to maintain lane control, allegedly telling troopers he fell asleep at the wheel. and of course that wal-mart truck driver in 2014 crashing into tracy morgan's limo, injuring the comedian and killing a friend. he is also accused of falling
